Rupert Sanders’s 5 most popular quotes

  • So when it was my turn to start developing projects, I knew the writers I wanted to work with, and I had met every head of studio, every executive and a lot of producers. I started finding things, little crumbs off other people’s tables that I would make my own.
  • I read every screenplay that was being sent to the other directors. None were being sent to me, but I was reading what others were choosing and what the best writers were writing.
  • I don’t love balls and sleeping beauties, that kind of thing. I think the great thing about ‘Snow White’ is those images have scarred me since I was a child with the Queen, the mirror, the taking of the heart, the huntsman and the enchanted forest.
  • To me, casting is all about finding a character within the actor off the screen as much as on the screen.
  • In a way I think why the Ghost story is very relatable to a large audience is that it’s kind of a coming of age story and it’s a realisation of ‘I am what I am – what has happened to me, good or bad, that is the sum of who I am now’.
